Grandmaster Wong demonstrates using a skyward cannon punch to counter an opponent attempting to dislocate his elbow

Knee strikes and elbow strikes are effective in close-quarter fighting. Muay Thai fighters use these attacks frequently. The video clips here show some effective counters against these attacks.

Another formidable attack is to dislocate an opponent's elbow. A suitable time to apply this technique is when an opponent executes an u skyward cannon punch or a upper-cut. Interestingly, the skyward cannon punch is also an effective counter against this elbow dislocation attack.
